It has the capability of dupe-checking, which is also done on the

>From manual.html:

The proxy now does limited timespan dupechecking, to reduce the network-load
of upstream servers a little bit. It works as follows:

A block is submitted, first it is looked up in the dupe-history queue. If it
is found there, it's a triple dupe. Just increment the dupe-number (so it
says: "block xx, 3 dupes" in the logs)

If it's not found in the dupe-history, look it up in the "block-history"
(explained later). If so, it a double dupe, log it as "block xx, 2 dupes".
Remove it from the block-history-queue en put it in the dupe-history-queue.

If it's not found in the block-history, it's not a dupe. Add it to the
"block-history", so we can compare subsequent blocks to it.

This dupechecking can be turned off with a ini-option: Set
[rc572]/checkduplicates or [desII]/checkduplicates] to 0 (zero) and this
mechanism will be disabled. Note that this is not useful at all, since the
fullproxies (or the keymaster) will filter them out eventually anyway!

Hi all!

I've just noticed that proxyper accepts the same block resent many
times. (One of my team members wanted to cheat with the stats).

I don't know if these blocks are actually relayed to the keyservers, but
they appear in the logs (Witch fools ppstats).

Is this an intended behaviour or should i submit it as a bug?
